Deep Vein Thrombosis Medical Malpractice Attorney in Chicago
When you go to a doctor, you are relying on them to provide you with the highest standard of care and you are trusting them to thoroughly exam you and run any necessary tests to come up with a proper diagnosis. When a patient has deep vein thrombosis (DVT), there are different tests that the doctor must run in order to ensure an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, the symptoms of DVT can mimic the symptoms of other conditions, which means that the doctors can misdiagnose the condition.
RB Law’s proficient medical malpractice attorneys have represented clients who have suffered a misdiagnosis of deep vein thrombosis and as a result, they have suffered a serious injury. Injuries from a misdiagnosis of DVT can result from not receiving the appropriate treatment, causing a pulmonary embolism. Deep vein thrombosis is when a blood clot forms in a vein deep within the skin, usually in the thigh or lower leg and if this blood clot goes up to the lungs, serious problems can result.
Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis
The symptoms of deep vein thrombosis are often mistaken for symptoms of another condition, so it is important that you go to a medical professional who is very thorough. Symptoms of DVT include:
It is critical that you go to your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms as soon as you can. If you have suffered an injury because your doctor failed to diagnose you with DVT, contact RB Law today.
